Somerset Orthodontic Specialists

Robert Peterman, DMD, MDS

Specialty: Orthodontics

At Somerset Orthodontic Specialists, Dr. Robert Peterman is committed to making patients feel comfortable and confident from their first consultation to the moment their braces come off and a gorgeous new smile is revealed. “I take the time to ensure that both patients and their parents understand their treatment every step of the way.”

State-of-the-Art Technology

A board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Peterman offers cutting-edge techniques and technology in his all-digital practice, including the elimination of impressions with Itero digital scanning, digital X-rays, lingual braces and Invisalign. “We use technology to deliver the best treatment possible based on each patient’s individual smile and facial aesthetics, so we can deliver beautiful smiles,” says Dr. Peterman.

Kid-Friendly Office

In his fun, friendly orthodontic office, patients can play video games or watch television—and kids love participating in the practice’s rewards program. Patients earn wooden nickels for excellent compliance and even good grades! They can cash them in for popular gift cards.

“Not only do we get exceptional results and create beautiful smiles for our patients, but we also have a lot of fun,” Dr. Peterman says, who is voted a second year as a Favorite Kids’ Doc.

A diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. Peterman earned his DMD from the University of Pennsylvania. He continued his dental training at Rutgers University where he earned a specialty degree in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and a master’s degree for his research in the field of orthodontics.

“There’s nothing more fun or exciting than being an orthodontist…I get to transform smiles and boost a patient’s confidence, and all while getting to know these unique, talented kids,” says the father of two.

"Our son had some wisdom teeth issues and second molar issues that kept his braces on longer. Dr. Peterman made sure those issues were addressed and worked together with the dentist and oral surgeon to make sure everything was taken care of. He is very kind!" -Michele, Raritan

"Dr. Peterman always makes us feel that time is on our side with him, even when he is busy. He really listened to our concerns and answered them in a cool way so my teenager really got it and would take his advice. Great, great Ortho!" -Summar, Green Brook

"Dr. Peterman and his office staff make the visit for my child fun and interactive. We were just starting out and my daughter spoke daily about how she cannot wait for the next appointment. There was a welcome sign on the TV in the lobby with her name on it at the first appointment. Friendly and comfortable atmosphere!" -Anna, Somerville

"Dr. Peterman is funniest, friendliest doctor I’ve ever seen. He is great with children and very experienced. I don’t think any other orthodontist would have been better. Dr. Peterman is exceptional because he uses methods that don’t hurt." -Pradnya, Bridgewater

"Dr. Peterman is so great to all his patients and makes my daughter feel very comfortable during her visits. He explains everything in great detail and is very trustworthy. Both my daughter and I have had braces done by him and we were both extremely happy with his service. His staff is also exceptional and very friendly!" -Nicole, Hillsborough

"Dr. Peterman is wonderful. He talks to my kids in a way that makes them feel in charge of their appointments and aftercare. He doesn’t oversell anything that’s not needed and he’s an all-around good guy!" -Karolyn, Hillsborough

"My son had a lot of anxiety about visiting an orthodontist until he met Dr. Peterman. He has a kind, reassuring manner that put my son at ease right away. His staff is knowledgeable and helpful, and every visit to the office constructive and pleasant. Dr. Peterman is a top-notch orthodontist who we recommend to all our friends in NJ!" -Victor, Bridgewater 

"We love our children's orthodontist because he works well with our children who all have a fear of the dentist. They like him a lot and he makes them feel comfortable. He offers fun games, incentives for following instructions, and a very friendly office. More importantly, their teeth are improving every day." -Kim, Somerset
